College Football Week 8 Parlay Picks

I got further away from a three-team parlay winner last week with two of my picks getting snuffed out. I said last week that I don’t typically back a team that’s favored by more than 30 points and I should’ve stayed true to my strategy. Instead I backed the Georgia Bulldogs laying 31.5 points to Vanderbilt and I guess you should never underestimate the heart of an underdog. The Commodores aren’t very good, and they didn’t win the game, but at least they weren’t embarrassed staying within the spread in the 37-20 setback. We’ve reached Week 8 in the college football season with time running out to hit a multi-wager parlay at my crypto sportsbook. That won’t prevent us from trying again, though.

If you’re gonna lose you might as well lose big so there’s no lingering doubt over what might have been. The Georgia loss was significant but I really screwed the pooch in my alphabet game backing BYU +5.5 on the road against TCU. A freshman making his first start shredded the Cougars defense with four TD passes in a 44-11 cakewalk. At least I didn’t go ohfer with the Pac-12 matchup between Washington and Oregon going OVER the 66.5 total which I backed without hesitation.

With the season winding down and no parlay winners on my side yet, I thought I’d change things up going with a four-teamer this week with a sweet payout that would more than make up for my past failures. You can throw the records and stats out the window when the service academies get together with the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy at stake in what is their own little playoff. Air Force might be the best Group of Five program boasting a perfect 6-0 record with payouts in three of their last four outings.

The Falcons lead the nation in rushing, average 37 points to place among the top 20 nationally and boast the third best total defense in the FBS. They throw the football just enough to keep opponents honest but will be without QB Zac Larrier, who was hurt against Wyoming. The ground game will be more of a focus and the Falcons shouldn’t have much of a problem moving the football against a run defense that ranks 80th. Air Force has won the last three meetings while earning payouts in five of the last seven encounters and despite the rivalry the Falcons are the better squad.

Penn State is poised to finally breakout in the Big Ten East with a chance on Saturday against Ohio State. Both squads are 6-0 and the line is lower than what we’ve seen in the past with OSU appearing vulnerable. That’s subjective though since the Buckeyes were so good in the past. They squeaked by Notre Dame 17-14 but their other five wins were all by 20 points or more. And the Buckeyes have won six straight in the series with the previous four meetings having a double-digit line. A huge game in the horseshoe with a low spread has me backing the Buckeyes.

A two-touchdown spread in a matchup of top 20 teams is unusual. With Duke’s Riley Leonard questionable action is heavy on the favored Seminoles, but its defense that’s carried Duke to a 5-1 record. The group has allowed seven points or less four times and limited Notre Dame to 21 points, though the loss of Leonard impacted the offense in their only defeat. Starting in place of Leonard last week Henry Belin completed just four passes with two of them resulting in a touchdown in the 24-3 win over NC State. Duke’s defense might surrender more than the 9.8 points per game allowed but the group should do enough to stay within the spread.

Michael Penix Jr. tore apart a much better defense last week and barring any catastrophic incidents should have another big game against Arizona State. The Huskies average 543.7 yards and 44.3 points to rank among the top 5 nationally. The Sun Devils have scored at least 21 points in each of their last three games and will likely need a few scores to cash the OVER, but UW is more than capable of doing that on their own.
